Jul 3 2020, 7:29 am

Over the course of a week, various Toronto grocery stores and LCBO locations disclose instances of employees being diagnosed with COVID-19.

We’re consolidating this information so that, going into the weekend, you know which local spots have seen recent cases, and if there are any closures to be aware of.

These are the locations with confirmed cases of coronavirus between June 26 and July 3:

LCBO

  • Closure: The LCBO at 2526D Weston Road temporarily closed because an in-store vendor tested positive for COVID-19. The vendor last worked at the location on Friday, June 26; the location was closed out of precaution for deep cleaning that same day, and was reopened on Saturday, June 27.

As the province gradually reopens, the LCBO says it will continue to prioritize the health and well-being of its employees, and there are safety measures in place, including cleaning and sanitization, in-store promotion of physical distancing, and HR policies in support of staff.

Grocery stores

  • Metro records were updated over the weekend to disclose a case confirmed June 25, impacting a staff member at the Metro located at 910 Southdown Road in Mississauga. According to the grocer’s records, the individual last worked on June 21.

“We will always contact and follow the guidance of Public Health to ensure the safety of our teammates and customers whenever we are made aware of a confirmed case of COVID-19 in one of our food stores or distribution centres,” reads Metro’s website.

The grocer says its online tracker is continually being updated in an effort to keep the public aware of where cases have been confirmed.
